Right. I've been clicking through libvirt.org (= killing time) and ...
how about to make it ala 'site map'.

+ add Justin's text how to contribute to documentation, although it
might be better to group such topic(dev'n contribution) at one place.
So, link to such place instead?

I know it's written very lightly and informal, jokingly, way. May be
even a bit annoying. Well, I've been just thinking. Actually, I came up
with these within minute(s).

But back to the point. I would go with very very simple. No romances, no
long texts. But perhaps I'm just simple person whom couldn't think of
better way.

Take it as my $0.02USD and I hope in better, and more creative, ideas
than this one. :)

Why not to include all of that at that page or ... somewhere, if not

Have a nice day,
